Waterloo's Salmond tableau was not ignited so presumably it still exists, packed to the gunwales with explosives. Perhaps it should be sent to Holyrood? Just need a Jock Fawkes, then the Scottish can have their own bonfire night.

Nah. Give it to East Sussex County Council and get them to recycle it / dispose if it.

Have a special Bonfire Night for it.
Chuck an effigy of the entire government and opposition, E Sussex Council, all the Old Bill concerned, any moaning whinging Scots and two of Norman Baker for good measure on the bonfire with it.
And a few new age Brighton fans

Send to Ed Milliband with a message , to be ignited if you try and govern England using MPs from a loosely federated foreign country
( Mind you by the look of it he may not even make it to the next election)

Send it to the person who made the complaint. Together with a recording of 'Storm in a teacup' (see link)

Strainingatthebit, there were hundreds of complaints, on twitter, and other social media. The council complaints line was permanently engaged. Some Waterloo members had abusive & threatening texts, even this site had to have offensive posts removed. All because some ESCC employee tweeted before the event! Yet again we are in danger of losing our traditions because people who do not understand interfere.

How about ESCC reimburse half of the ticket price for the Waterloo fire site goers? They missed out on the main event of the night for which they paid good money.
If not ESCC - then the abusive tweeters and complaining Scotsmen. That would really hit them where it hurts...

technically, a tradition is soemthing that has happened every year for ten years without a break on the appointed day. So, no one can stop the building and sending off of a aTab in the future. The outside world is a dour and troubling place with little or no respect for healthy tradition of satire.
Can you imagine if spitting image had gone through this.
waterloo, you have my full support and well done to the Tab team. None of you deserve the abuse and threats that you have had to take. We all stand together, "True to each other".

The big question may be what to do with Waterloo Bonfire. They have blatantly capitulated to political pressures mainly originating hundreds of miles away and have no heart to live up to the Lewes motto, "We wunt be druv". The shame is palpable. If Waterloo didn't want to stand for their decisions then they should have given the tab to one of the societies with backbone. The Scottish surely have to put their petty protestations into perspective when it takes the likes of Piers Morgan to add context: “Don’t take this Lewes bonfire thing too personally AlexSalmond – they burned me too.” And rightly so.

Thanks to Waterloo has become apparent that, in some cases, threatening behaviours can be an effective tactic and the capitulation increases overall vulnerability.
What has happened to the other society that had backbone and burned their Salmond inclusive tableau? Nothing.
The person delivering the threats is the criminal party in this situation and other societies and the police should give full support.
Risks should be evaluated before initial decisions are taken. There are also risks involved in the sending up fireworks. Should we withdraw the use of fireworks for similar reasons. If Waterloo is not prepared to finish what they start then it would be better for all of us if they didn't start at all.

Unfortunately this is not the first time Waterloo haven't got the backbone to stand up for themselfs
Years ago I came up with the idea of producing the bonfire boys procesion banner
A year before the other societies produced copies of our one
It was a select group of us and only a handful know who we all are
We presented it as a gift at our anual dinner
This stirred up so much shxt from commercial square that The spineless committee mothballed it
I believe it is still in barbicans cellar
It angers me so much that this fantastic banner still hasn't seen the light of the moon As there is still an inherent spineless chairman and committy sitting in control of Waterloo
They should be ashamed of themselfs
Having not got the courage to stand up for bonfire tradition
If they want I have the courage to take not only the tabloux out and I would carry the banner
And hold up the comstitutal right of FREE SPEACH
If Waterloo you grow a backbone you should be able to work out who I am

What a fantastic use of vile expletives
This goes to show you have limited use of the English language
That you feel the need to resort to swearing
I suppose you need to use it as a link word between sentences
You must be the brightness bulb in your dim family
Now can you try harder string more than one sentence together without the need to use such language Lets go the whole hog and try more than one sentence even
Maybe two or even three without a swear word
Now just try harder
Ask someone to help if you cannot manage
Good chap

Oh parking meter I suspect I know who you are! And I must say it's about time you grew a pair! If you have such an issue with how a society is run why don't you put your money where you mouth is and give it a try? Although I suspect you may have already had your chance and failed? Is you rant sour grapes perhaps? Why don't you dig your banner out I like many others would love to see it and hear your views! Game on!

To Parking meter and Greg if you really do care about Lewes Bonfire then this forum is not the place to air your views but, unusually, I am posting as I object to your referring to me as “inherent” as this insults my family who you have never met. Yes I do know who you might be Pm but at least Greg has the courage to put his name to his post. If either of you want to speak to me directly then I am happy to explain why we had to make this decision. You shouldn’t have any difficulty finding me as many hundreds of others have and I am usually about.
For the record Waterloo did not duck from making a very difficult decision which we knew would result in comments such as yours. Your opinion is, of course, the obvious response from those who do not know the circumstances, but wringing your hands in fear for Bonfire suggests that it is you who lacks the backbone. Waterloo are made of sterner stuff, will hold our heads up with pride and will continue regardless and are grateful for the support of the other societies.

If you manage to find where the banner is stored
We can get it out of the moth balls
Then

Nothing would give me greater pleasure to walk it out next 5th
It's been far to long buried away
If you know who I am
Then it's no difficulty contacting me
Just ask JG to give me a ring to arrange
OK

Sorry to CSBS you are correct it was Borough that stirred up all the fuss And forcing a copitulation by Waterloo
However it didn't deture CSBS making a similar banner and parading down the high street The following year
I see that DQ has kindly offered to hand over the banner
We donated it to Waterloo
So they are the rightful owners
I'm still up for carry it out on the UG prosession next 5 no problem
Just need some one to hold up the other side
I expect Karl J would be willing if asked or one of the Penfold family
So Mr Slott any "objections"
Or will you have to take it to committy
Over to you now !!!!!

Hi Andy. I will happily take this to committee and raise the question. And find out who has it. And kj you are right if it was donated then it's waterloo property. And should be returned and stored with all our other banners. I'll also ask at the members de brief on monday as I'm sure there will be someone there who no where it is. Along with all other old banners.

It's been "stored" for to long
The question should be
"Taken out" in the UG as intended
The banner should be taking to the AGM to let all decide
I know the Penfold family would be up for marching with it
